I am a 72 year old male. I have a J-Pouch (which was formed about one month ago) along with an accompanying ileostomy. On Monday I go see my surgeon to determine the date he will close the ileostomy. I have a list of questions to ask but I thought I would ask those of you out there with J-Pouches, who have been through this procedure, what questions you would ask the surgeon.
The one thing I am most concerned about is watery stool and incontinence. My stool is very watery at night, even after taking Imodium, and I am concerned after closing the ileostomy I will be incontinent during the night.
This forum has been great for me and I look forward to hearing from any of you.
